Ever since the Illinois helmet law was declared unconstitutional by the Illinois Supreme Court, Illinois bikers have had a stellar track record of, year after year, successfully fending off attempts by some statist Illinois lawmakers to force helmets onto the heads of motorcyclists. Bob Myers, legislative coordinator of ABATE of Illinois, shares some of the methods that work well, and as a result, Illinois is one of the remaining HELMET CHOICE rather than HELMET MANDATORY states. The 2011 session has not yet started, and already there are 5 helmet bills introduced by legislators from Chicago. If we let government force helmets ONTO our heads, what is next? Will they force something INTO our heads? Whether you ride motorcycles or not, none of us are immune to such intrusions. Now, is the time to Say "NO!!" When they come after you, it may be too late. Draw that line in the sand now!
